Mr. OBEY. Madam Speaker, I ask unanimous consent that all Members may have 5 legislative days in which to revise and extend their remarks and include extraneous material on the pending legislation.

Mr. OBEY. Madam Speaker, I think people understand what this legislation is--it is an effort to redirect some $75 billion from TARP funds that in the past have been directed to help Wall Street. Instead, direct them to Main Street to try to help Americans who are struggling to hang onto their jobs, their houses, and their health care. I think the need for it is obvious, and I urge passage.

I reserve the balance of my time.
